Hello and Happy New Year to you! I hope you had a good Christmas and enjoyed a sparkly time.

So I’m back doing what I love and have been making some new pieces ready for St Dwynwen’s Day and Valentine’s Day.

What is St. Dwynwen’s Day?

St Dwynwen’s Day or ‘Dydd Santes Dwynwen’ as its know in Welsh, is the welsh equivalent of St Valentine’s Day. 

St Dwynwen was a fourth-century princess who lived in what is now known as the Brecon Beacons.  She is the Welsh patron saint of lovers.  And here in Wales, we like to show our affection for our partners by sending cards and gifts each year on 25th January which this year falls on a Tuesday.

What is Valentines Day?

Valentine’s Day or also known as Saint Valentine’s day is celebrated on 14th February each year and this year it falls on a Monday.

According to Wikipedia it originated as a Christian feast day honouring one or two early Christian martyrs named Saint Valentine and, through later folk traditions, has become a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance and love in many regions of the world.

Nowadays couples show their love for each other by sending tokens of their love quite often in the shape of flowers and chocolates.  But if you are looking for something that will last longer why not buy your loved one a piece of unique jewellery.

Each of my pieces are handmade by me in my Little Purple Shed so you know that each piece will be completely unique just like your loved one!

Don’t forget my Caru Ti and I love you rings which are available for ladies or men as well as the gift sets to treat your loved one.

Flowers wilt and die but jewellery will sparkle forever.

Happy valentines,

love you all ❤️ Jo x x
